    This tour was relaxed and friendly but also well planned and professional. The Coromandel Peninsula is beautiful but if you only have one day to enjoy it you really want to see the best bits. This tour took us on the Driving Creek railway, Cathedral Cove and hot sands. We journeyed through beautiful landscape and seascapes. Murray, our driver was a mine of fascinating facts and stories that for me, really brought the area alive. I learnt a lot about New Zealand and had a great day.

    Fabulous full day led by Alex. Hadn’t known what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed it. Alex was a great guide and so knowledgeable. He looked after us taking account of our abilities to do things. There were 4 of us and it was a great atmosphere all day. Would totally recommend the tour and Alex. Thank you Andrea, Gill and Sue.

    Great small group tour. The guides were very informative about the history of the region, and helpful about the potential challenges on some of the walking trails. A lot packed into a day trip!

    We were fortunate to be the only two on the Day Tour with Damian! He was our very own private tour guide and very knowledgeable :) From start to finish we enjoyed the day with Damian going the extra mile to make it a great one! We were able to see the highlights of the penisula within a one day excursion - that worked well for our timelines. And without having the stress of driving. We would love to spend more time at Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove - those were our highlights of the day! We appreciate the attention to detail and the conservation efforts that Bush and Beach make! This tour was definitely a highlight of our holiday.

    We spent the day with guides Geoff & Kevin for the Coromandel Peninsula Day Tour. The hot water beach was extraordinary. Cathedral cove was awe-inspiring. Geoff & Kevin provided an informative narrative throughout the entire trip. Just breathtaking.

    A small coach for a better time fluidity, a charming guide speaking of history, nature and economy and beautiful landscapes and views. A great day ! Formule parfaite si vous n’avez pas de véhicule ou si vous arrivez sans connaître le pays.

    Amazing day out , didn't start too well as one of the parties were late picking up, however both Damien and Dawn handled it very well. They both did an excellent job and made the whole day the most enjoyable part of our stay in Auckland. They are both socially engaging and knowledgeable and what they didn't know wasn't worth knowing. The Cathedral Cove stop was amazing and well worth the effort involved getting down there and back. Hot Water Beach is a now a ticked off Bucket List even if only a short stay! Lunch stop off was very good, always a bit weary of these on day trips, but excellent choice. The DCR Railway and Pottery was a unique experience, quite charming that the driver used to live in Stoke on Trent!! Overall a great experience which you would struggle to do on your own in the same timescale. Highly recommended

    This is my first visit of New Zealand, and I’m traveling all on my own. I researched a great deal about New Zealand but didn’t know where to even start. I booked a tour with this group and I had such a great time. From the very beginning the pickup was friendly and accommodating, even at such an early time! I was the last one to join the group in the tour van. What was interesting was that all 5 of us on the tour were traveling solo. Something not common, but helped pull us all together. What really made this a special time was our tour guide, Damian. He was so knowledgeable and friendly, he made the whole trip so enjoyable. All the stops, including a coffee/breakfast quick stop in the beginning on the way to Coromandel, lunch, and a snack before we headed back were great. Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach was amazing. The group had a great time and felt very much like a close knit group throughout. I definitely recommend!
